BIG UPDATEŚ Baptist Child and Family Services Withdraws Bid for Palm Aire Resort (Video)
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 7/16/14 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/16/2014 9:45:09 PM PDT by Nachum

palm aire resort
The beautiful Palm Aire resort and hotel has an indoor Olympic sized pool and an outdoor pool.  Free Wi-Fi and cable TV are included in the simply decorated guest rooms.

The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is set to be sold to Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) operating under a federal contract, pending local government approval, according to reports from Weslaco, Texas where the hotel is located. Weslaco is a few miles north of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo County.

The resort hotel for illegal alien children is reportedly the ‘first in the nation’.

Now this…
Due to backlash the charity received after the story was posted on The Drudge Report, Baptist Child and Family Services withdrew it’s bid for the Palm Aire Resort.

The charity said it was disappointed and that the resort would have been perfect for the illegal alien children.

I’m trying to figure out how I can afford to take my grandson and one of his friends to the hill country for three days because the government is taking my money to pay for a vacation for illegals. Something is wrong with this picture.

My heart bleeds. And it's too bad, and it's too sad, I'm still not in love with you the feckless fool on the hill. Oh my, my heart bleeds worthless one. Be happy you have gained the ultimate top ten—the worst president ever. Enjoy it.

Just think of how "perfect" it would be for AMERICAN children!

Will you look at that beautiful hotel. Just damn! How many people in our own nation would love to live in a setting like that, but can’t afford it.

This is getting way out of control folks. We’re going to see a mutiny before this is over.

Reposted for this thread:

Take a look at the PDF of IRS form 990 for BCFS Health and Human Services (EIN 74-1260710) of San Antonio, Texas for the year 2012.

Their CEO is Kevin Dinnin of San Antonio, Texas, who was paid a salary $397,175 plus $50,624 extra compensation for his services in 2012.

Treasurer is Claudia Oliveira, was paid $182,909 + $43,429. Executive Directors include Asennet Segura ($181,895 + $68,370 + $62,510), Kari Tatro ($189,516 + $50,471 + $26,787) and Terri Hipps ($176,267 + $26,002). Additional Directors include Sonya Thompson ($169,018 + $12,436), Denise Grimm ($122,206 + $11,593), Mario Guerra ($167,419 + 19,248) and Jon Bodie ($134,602 + $16,344).

Independent Contractors include “Jani King of San Antonio Region” ($101,659),“Roth Staffing Companies” ($206,927), “Centerview Market Place” ($241,735).

(I wonder if these names, or names of persons close to them, also show up on Democratic Party political donor lists?)

Government grants of over $63.3 million are on page 9, and they indicate grants for the prior year were over $70 million!

Related Organizations include “Children’s Emergency Relief International” IRS EIN 74-2933669, “BCFS Educational Services” IRS EIN 45-5251954, “Baptist Child and Family Services Foundation” IRS EIN 74-2603561, “BCFS Property Management” IRS EIN 62-1867350, “Baptist Care Facilities for Persons With…” IRS EIN 74-2833616, and “Christian Community Development Corporation” IRS EIN 56-2573060.

All share the same address at 1506 Bexar Crossing, San Antonio TX 78232

BCFS President Kevin Dinnin met with Obama on his most recent Texas visit at Lackland Air Base (where contractors were told to keep their mouths shut about what they saw), so this gang is tied directly the White House.

Now they probably get to just ‘pocket’ the fifty million bucks of taxpayer money......

Which, now that I think about it, was probably the plan from the beginning.

Thanks for spreading the word. BCFS appears to be a liberal, suck-ass kinda place. No wonder they dropped Baptist from their official name.

Obviously Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) is a business and should be taxed as a business.

The Baptist Church and the Catholic Church has been in bed with Obama from the start regarding amnesty for those who have broken our laws. It is time we started taxing them both as the businesses they are. Tax their income and tax their properties. They always want to “do good” with other peoples money, it is time they know what it is like to have the government take away what is yours to give to someone the government deems more deserving.

It looks like it was an intended purchase of a facility that had seen better days. And not necessarily with the intent of keeping all the luxuries of those better days (for example, they’d probably fill in the pool, convert gyms into more residential rooms, etc.). They’re possibly figuring what the hey, they can evangelize a big group of kids.

But the optics were simply atrocious... and one thing I have to chuckle at (having sat in on a Baptist business meeting) is that Baptists and optics don’t always go all that well together. Explaining how something might work to the good isn’t always their forte.

Probably figuring that “well, the government is going to award it to somebody, might as well be us.”

But there is such a thing as tainted dough. It looks like they were more sensitive to it on the Baptist side than the Catholic side would be.

It would be very difficult to resist some of the temptations of such a high-dough venture.

I have to wonder about some of these big-dough positions. Are these people donating most of the associated income, which is urged in the bible? Being owned by one’s wealth — letting your earthly possessions define who you are rather than what resources you are operating with — is an easy trap to fall into.

I’m not sure any “we” is to credit there.

Looks much more like there was still enough of a link to the Lord to queer such an overall ungodly deal. I don’t think these Baptists would have been able to evangelize in this situation, so the only real rationale for doing it was gone.

Catholic side has been far more brassy given the same kind of revelation. Busting the shameless is a futile endeavor.

Has the feds been eyeballing the Alamo? They could probably get several hundred illegals into that facility. They could turn it into an illegal alien theme park with little tunnels, rivers to run through. An Autopia where they could play virtual auto pursuits. Play games to make federal agency's compete to see how many tax dollars they can give them.

U.S. tax payer pinatas throughout the park!

BCFS is as Baptist as Westboro. On their own webpage they list their partners, and every one of them is a government agency. No Baptist churches, or any other churches. They are a government contractor, not a Baptist Church.

They aren’t Baptists. They are government contractors, with no known ties to any Baptist Churches.

They already got millions. The 50 million for the resort will now be spent secretly somewhere else.

Isn’t it just hunky dory that this outfit wants to “buy” the resort with taxpayer money then get paid with taxpayer money to run it. I guarantee this is mostly a money laundering operation. And the “officers” of this entity aren’t the only ones getting big bucks.

And this is only one “charity”. There are probably hundreds. Could it be this entire border crashing is just a front for money laundering and theft?

” I don’t think these Baptists would have been able to evangelize in this situation”... As noted by reserach99 in post 11 I’d question what the real motive was? This is a religious organization?? Are any that get the amount of funds we’re hearing about religious? Funded by Gov’t to such an extent? Just like the States, take these funds so long as you do “X”. Little by little and step by step, he who pays calls the tune.

Too much resistance by “outside forces” may have shut this deal down. Too bad there isn’t MORE resistance by the people.

Or any American! Hell's bells, I'm over fifty and worked most my life....but I could never afford to splurge on staying in a resort like that.

Guess I've been doing this work-hard-and-follow-the-law thing all wrong.

I agree. He’s not alone though. The whole government has been gearing up for something. I think they’re all hoping for martial law. I have no idea why.

Perhaps they’re scared to death the populace is waking up to their treachery.

Thanks for the good news ping. Ten years ago, would you have ever guessed that we’d celebrate the fact that some 5-star resort hotel wouldn’t be providing free housing and services to criminal illegal aliens, funded by our tax dollars? What a world.
